, become more aggressive. he's talked a lot about big bird out there on the campaign trail. romney is now kind of attacking him for keeping talking about big bird and pbs. what do you make of where the obama campaign is right now? >> i make that the obama campaign sees an opening there. the question is every campaign, candidates stumble, openings come. the question is can you recover from your mistakes, can you seize the opening. president obama sees we're talking about the giant scope of the federal budget and governor romney mentions big bird and pbs. come on, he doesn't get it. that's what president obama is trying to say. he doesn't want to cut wall street, he wants to not hurt the rich people when it comes to taxes and he wants to beat up on big bird. what governor romney says, you saw him pivot again today, he says well, that's just one example but you have to give examples and you have to start making choices. we have to review everything and we can't keep from china. it helps both of them. conservatives love to hear their candidate beating up on pbs, on government subsidies, sayin
featuring ann romney. he has to find a way to talk to women. yes, he does very well with suburban men, almost a mirror image of the women numbers, but he has to get the suburban women up. his big area that he can mine is really married suburban women, so you're going to see them targeting a lot of ads to those women. >> john, you heard the people kind of doubting the polls that go against their candidate and supporting the polls that do. you have been following polls for years. you know as well as anyone they're snapshots in time. what's the significance of them in this race right now? >> well, there are so many of them and we are so polarized, in the twitterverse in our conversations, most of the polls show a tiny percentage of undecided because you have the democrat and republican camps. it doesn't surprise me that there's doubt. if anything happens against your guy, you immediately start a conspiracy theory. if you look at polls over the years, it's not an exact science, it's a snapshot in time. we will see if governor romney can sustain this bounce. the president got one ahead of
this in some time. i have to tell you, i talked to a senior romney advisor about this pew research center poll and they look at a couple things here. in relation to these polls. they are looking at the enthusiasm that is coming out at some of their campaign events. i can tell you, we have been at several of these campaign events over the last several days and they are getting some big turnouts, sometimes in excess of 10,000 people, and while yes, that may not be obama campaign numbers, those are good numbers for mitt romney. another thing that they're looking at, they are looking at undecided voters. they feel like undecided voters, because of that debate being viewed by so many millions of americans last week, that mitt romney was able to reach through the filter of the media as they like to call it, ann romney referred to it that way in an event in florida last week, and beyond those campaign ads, the very nasty campaign ads coming from the obama campaign to talk directly to the american people, and they feel like that's a factor as well. they are also looking at what they call persuadable v
in the battleground states. you know, we -- i have been to michigan several times. we talked about can governor romney put pennsylvania into play. both of these states were out of reach, michigan and pennsylvania heading into the first debate. look where they are now. dead heat statistically in the state of michigan, where romney was born. his dad was governor. in pennsylvania, a close race as well with the president oh top. i'm a bit skeptical. i want to see if this happens in a second and third poll but this is vy important. states like this suddenly being in play heading into the final couple of weeks because if the president has to start spending time and money defending pennsylvania and defending michigan, that means less time the president is spending in florida, in ohio, in the western battlegrounds. at the moment the map is expanding, finally the romney campaign would say in its favor. >> interesting. john, thanks. >>> let's dig deeper. let's look forward to round three of the debates on tuesday, where the campaign is headed. joined by patrick millsaps, former chief of staff and paul begala. t

between president obama and governor romney. i think he was talking about his health c.a.r.e. plare plan last. i believe everybody was given a 90-minute opportunity to be more -- >> in his health care plan he was saying pre-existing conditions are covered. but under most definitions, pre-existing conditions are not covered. if you have health insurance and you lose your job and have a preexisting condition, you can continue with coverage if you pay the premiums, that's not most people's definition. >> that is right. and i read that his senior adviser did talk about that in the spin room after the debate and clarified. i do want to say that the whole abortion and contraception, it's been talked to death this year through the war on women. i noticed conspicuous by his absence in that debate, president bush never uttered abortion or contraception -- >> but the health care thing we just talked about. his spokesman corrected him afterwards. why did he need to be corrected? you would think he would know what his position is. >> you have to ask governor romney what he said. i don't think there
